WESTMINSTER, Mass. (WHDH) – Hundreds laced up their running sneakers Saturday to participate in a 5K in memory of Vanessa Marcotte.
The 27-year-old Leominster native was killed while jogging back in 2016.
The 5K – held in Westminster – honors the memory of Marcotte by remembering her and the things she loved.
For the second year in a row, the third annual Springing into Action 5K donated money to Tutoring Plus of Cambridge, which provides one-on-one tutoring with students.
Roughly 200 people participated in Saturday’s event and raised just over $5,000.
